Gadget Review - George Foreman Grill

R: Okay, here is what we do to get what we want
*Whispers in secret
J: OMG, you are genius, let's do it. *evil grin ;)

You see, for this Christmas party with friends, instead of the normal secret Santa, we opt for a White Elephant gift exchange (read the rules here).  Basically it's a game where you are allowed to steal other people's gift, but each gift can only be stolen for 3 times, before it's off the 'market'. Of course with 2 people in the game, it's much easier to strategize, so I am happy to report we did manage to score this George Foreman grill.

Service: 2
Price: Fair 

I think I have just discovered the big secret for not waiting in line at a Richmond restaurant. After careful observation, it seems the golden time at most restaurant is 6pm. Never arrive after 7pm, unless you have tons of time to waste. Anyway R and I were in Richmond, and craving for some noodle soup. Given our location, we decided to head to Bubble Waffle Cafe in Pacific Plaza. It was only about half full when we arrived around 6:30, by 7:00 it was jam packed with a big line up.
